It's not the fall that hurts, it's the landing that's a bitch

The fall isn't fatal, but the landing sometimes can be. In this case, the fall has been more than a little uncomfortable for the world at large watching.

It's a long way from this

To this

I know that earlier this week I joked about this being a publicity stunt to get back into the spotlight, and kick that dead body out of the news headlines, but really, this is a cry for help. A serious cry for help.

She's a little girl lost.

Remember when this was the most controversial thing she had done?

Doesn't seem so bad now does it?

It wasn't that long ago that Brit and Madonna were pretty tight.

Maybe Madge could come back to America for just a short visit, invite the fallen Pop Princess back to her palace (after rehab, of course), away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi in America, and spend 6 months with Brit. Brit needs to be completely out of the spotlight, and who better to help Brit clean up her image than the Queen of reinvention herself?

A big part of me feels sorry for her. I know what it's like to feel like your life is a complete failure, a total mess, and to be completely out of control. I hurt that she is losing her children. As a mother that pain is beyond words and description. And while I know its best for the boys, that decision will only add to her feelings of worthlessness and failure, and will only add to the downward spiral she's on.

Another part of me finds little sympathy for the fact that she's having this breakdown in the public eye and in front of the media. There are plenty of places to go to get away, and heal. It will take time, and it will take work. Relax Britney, the media will still be there when you come back. Go find yourself, get help, become someone worth watching, and following.

I don't know how much further she call fall, before she hits her complete and utter rock bottom. My only hope is that once she hits bottom, she bounces.
